MT. ST. HELENS VIETNAM BAND Rips A Live In-Studio Performance For KEXP

The fine young people of MT. ST. HELENS VIETNAM BAND recently stopped by their hometown’s most awesome radio station KEXP for a live-in studio session. The band brought along both their own flavor of Molly Moon’s ice cream and their insanely tight “punchy rhythms, melodic phrasing and sharp guitar shredding.” The KEXP site is offering up a hat-trick of videos from the session, and a fouth video as part of its Video of The Week podcast. Watch the video for “Who’s Asking” below.

This weekend MSHVB will play Sasquatch Festival before heading out for a full-on summer tour that includes a slot at Tennessee’s Bonnaroo Music Festival. See a full list of dates HERE.
